[Back Order] WD Black 4TB AN1500 NVMe Internal Gaming SSD Add-in-Card $492.89 + Delivery ($0 with Prime) @ Amazon UK via AU

370

Ok, Im not sure about this one. The price is too good to be true so it's probably a pricing error.
I was looking for prices on a 4TB M2 SSD on amazon, and this came up as a recommendation. Obviously its not an M2, but damn its cheap. These were going for $1300 - $1500 here at local stores. It's out of stock, but they are taking back orders, and apparently dont charge you until it is available. I didnt really want a PCIe add-in card SSD, but ordered anyway because if it actually gets sent out, ill find a use for it.
Anyway, sorry if this isnt worth posting, but hell, maybe some one else is willing to take a gamble on one too

      the card is a RAID card with 2*2T NVMe card (probably SN750)
      I ordered two of them back in April when it was showing out of stock, but still taking order. So did not post here….
      It was in backorder status till last week, I heard the great news, they are shipping.
      Think Its a price bug from Amazon international store….

        I wonder if the NVME drives can be swapped over too another brand like the Samsung NVME drives

        • +1 vote

          not sure, you want to chuck in 24T NVMe drive?
          4T is decent capacity already…
          I saw some below link showing it is SN730 *2 inside, but I checked that SN730 only has 1T as highest capacity.
          really wondering if there are 2
          SN750 inside.

          •  

            @sanrs: i was wondering the exact same thing

            in a review for either the sn730 or the an1500 (i cant remember which now sorry, i was doing a lot of reading at the time) they mentioned that the sn730 comes in 512gb, 1TB and 2TB.

            problem is though, they could have just been assuming this. I havent seen any photos of the 4TB model with the heatsink removed so cant confirm either way.

      hard to believe it has been down that cheap before. i wonder if its getting confused between the 1TB and 4TB models
      either way, a 2TB M2 drive would set me back $4-500 at the moment, so a 4TB for $500 is still ridiculous

      •  

        Not so sure on that one. You basically need a good reason to get PCIe gen 3 x4 4TB NVMe SSD right now. While it is rated PCIe gen 3 x8 max, good luck getting it to work at PCIe gen 3 x8 mode.

        A more sensible m.2 currently is around $250:

        Do you have a real usage for this?

  •  

    Wonder if these would work in the Aurora R12 once I receive that … mmmm

    Seeing the 2TB is $799 …. more than likely pricing error … but yeah great price and nice find :)

        scroll down a lil more / search for market on the page

        remember Amazon is just an outlet for companies to sell items on mass …

        •  

          I see. Thanks for the info, I don't use Amazon that often. I saw the message after I successfully placed the order (saying "Thank you for purchase from Amazon Marketplace…."). But yeah…check the product page it displays as Amazon UK. Maybe you are right

          • +2 votes

            @a2741890: I had a look through previous emails from amazon. It appears to say that whenever you order from Amazon UK or US. Hopefully returns wont be an issue if they do something like send out the 1TB cards instead..

  • +1 vote

    It's basically 2x nvme gen drives in raid on a riser card to get those speeds without gen4. Would check a few reviews first, definitely avoid marketplace sellers.

    I didnt really want a PCIe add-in card SSD, becoz I’m using an ITX and only got one pcie. But ordered anyway because if it actually gets sent out, ill build a new ATX

    Reminds me of this deal - https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/622559
    But I doubt they will let us keep what looks to be 1TB listed as 4TB when requesting refund, but should be free to return anyway for their mistake.

    The UK version of the same pages for reference:
    Seems meant to be 1TB - https://www.amazon.co.uk/WD_BLACK-AN1500-Card-6500MB-4100MB/...

      Haha, the details section for your 1TB one describes it as 4tb.

      • +2 votes

        Yeah it seems like that's the source of the pricing error - they've mixed it up

    •  

      It gets even more confusing when comparing to Amazon US:
      What I thought seemed to be 1TB on Amazon UK is 4TB for Amazon US - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08HBPMPZ2/

        yeah, I'm wondering will I receive 1T or 4T.

      Wait so it's not a bargain. Order cancelled.

      • +4 votes

        Umart is $1299
        PLE is $1499
        etc

        So yes if it gets honoured at this price … it's basically 1/2 -> 1/3 of the price other places are selling it for.

        IF we get sent the 1Tb version instead of the 4 … then Amazon's policy is that we could return it for free as it's their fault basically as the wrong product was sent. That's one thing I love about shopping on Amazon. the level of customer service you receive.

        •  

          Cheers, I'll hang on to it and see how it goes. Probably end up with a $20 Amazon apology voucher out of it.

    One of the reviews said it's only 400TB endurance. That's only 100 writes. Pretty low for an enthusiast drive.

    •  

      That's a review based on the 2TB model.

        Too late, mine already shipped a couple of days ago, although I did order almost 6 weeks ago. Hopefully it's the full fat 4TB.

      Did you read the other comments? It's been like this since April as pointed out by the second comment.
      https://au.camelcamelcamel.com/product/B08HBPMPZ2?context=se...

      The thing most people have not noticed is that this is a PCIe gen 3 x8 rated NVMe SSD. Problem is, on most systems, you are most likely left with a PCIe x4 slot (as you would save your PCIe x16 slot for your GPU). Sure, if you have a server class motherboard and chipset AND server class CPU, there could be sufficient PCIe lanes to fully utilise this. Yes, it does operate in PCIe gen x4 mode.

      Again, it comes down to whether getting a 4TB PCIe gen 3 x8 (or even x4) makes sense right now.

      •  

        My board has an x8 directly from the CPU, just need to share it with the GPU. Besides, since the cats already out of the bag, this thing is just 2x 2TB Nvme drives sandwiched on an enterprise RAID controller anyhow. You could shove those in a laptop if you wanted. Although the firmware has these pegged at full power all the time.

      •  

        You don't need a server class platform for this, you just need to be able to read motherboard block diagrams or drop down to x4 speeds.

        •  

          So we are looking at RAID 0, and is this thing really worth running in x8 / x8 configuration? I guess people into this would have a higher end motherboard which supports this. For people on a budget, they wouldn't look into this.

          2x2TB setup… Hm….

          •  

            @netsurfer: I don't understand what more there is to contemplate given it's $123.23 per TB of TLC NAND w/ DRAM cache. This is basically an insta buy or an insta Broden for a now ever growing group playing at home.

            •  

              @TeddyBear: How much would those 2TB nvme drives retail for individually?

              •  

                @bumbandito69: As much as people are willing to pay for a 2TB OEM sticker NVMe drive without retail packaging.

                •  

                  @TeddyBear: I'm not looking to sell them. Just thinking I may rejig my upcoming pc build. Put the 980pro in my PS5 instead, shuck this and use both 2TB drives in my mobo. Was just wanting to know if $250 for a previous gen m2 drive was worth it.

            •  

              @TeddyBear: Per TB price, it is good if you considered it's NVMe. However, my experience with RAID 0 (and even RAID 5) is mixed - and that's a nice way to put it. Then, there is also the question of NVMe in general. Though, I am pretty sure you would have other m.2/NVMe SSD(s) in your system already so it is not going to be only 1 NVMe SSD in your system.

              I get why people with a high end gaming system would find it attractive. My main issue is the 2x2TB setup. I just won't do RAID 0 and not keen to buy 2x2TB NVMe PCIe gen3 SSDs. It's just me - more that I've got to stop buying more NVMe gen3 toys.

              •  

                @netsurfer: There's also the case if you're planning for an Alder Lake pci-e 5.0 platform, you'd be wasting more pci-e 5.0 lanes than you ought to without the speed benefit. Same goes for X570. But even so, x4 3.0 is plenty for most people.

    For everyone that missed out. It's a bargain, but the money you saved by missing out will allow you to get other PC upgrades.
